try zegerid otc. it's the first 24-hour treatment with two active ingredients: prescription-strength medicine plus a protective ingredient so it's effectively absorbed. for 24-hour relief, try dual-ingredient zegerid otc. jim ramsey joins us now. bottom line is we are about to feel what we are supposed to feel this time of year. >> that will probably be about two days away and the short run we will continue to see our temperatures a little above the normal. in fact, our present temperature right now currently is two degrees above the normal high for this date and we have a couple three degrees to go yet.
12:34 pm
>> that's good news. >> fairly mild. little chill in the air but it's supposed to. it's november. we are looking at temperatures probably dropping another 15 degrees or so on thursday. we will talk about that in a few homes. time lapse cameras showed the clouds. as you look to the south, the clouds are a little thicker than they are to the north. we were getting sunshine, but it's filtered by the high clouds. there is a very active weather system that's moving through the ohio valley and that's spilling the clouds over the mid west and parts of the plains. in iowa and minnesota more cloudiness associated with another system is also threatening to probably invade the chicago area. now, our present temperature currently is 49 degrees at o'hare airport. but take a look at that cold air up in canada, that's going to make a surge to the south and make its way in here by thursday and that will keep our air temperatures quite uncomfortable. across the region temperatures not too bad at the moment. most places in the upper 40s. even a few low 50s.
12:35 pm
no moisture much. dew point temperatures look at those numbers. very low for this hour. wind just barely more than a whisper out there. few spots five miles per hour or maybe a little more. got a little lake influence, too. if you are walking along the lakefront, wear a coat but it's actually going to be warmer there than in the inland areas. our temperature forecast, look at that cold air sinking to the south. that's thursday's weather right there. that is bit leer cold air up in canada. we were watching that for next week. but in the short run we will warm up behind the cool down on thursday. but then it's going to probably rain as we go into the weekend and then some of that very cold air makes a run on chicago about a week from today. so we will have to watch that. this is the radar. and notice this system which is bringing rain to the east coast and the ohio valley down to the mid-mississippi valley. and also we are seeing snow that's developed in parts of northwestern wisconsin and northeastern minnesota at this
12:36 pm
hour. but is that much more active snow system out on the rorocky mountains over into even idaho, washington, others, down into colorado and even parts of wyoming picking up snow. there is in fact a winter storm warning in effect for extreme western montana that could pick up several inches there and it's probably going to be a blessing to skiers who want to get in on maybe a little early season skiing. our computers look like this. you can see the cloudiness moving out and this system coming in through wisconsin bringing more clouds to the area over the next couple of days. behind it some clear sky and unfortunately the clear skies will make the air feel quite cool. notice even more clouds pushing across the dakotas toward minnesota, so we may have a cloudy period or two yet in the next search days. here is our forecast first of all for the afternoon. skies across the area. clouding up in a few spot was high temperature in the 50s. northeast breezes but not much to them. two to search miles per hour.
12:37 pm
tonight partly cloudy. light winds. 35 to 39 degrees overnight lows with a northerly breeze and the winds pick up on wednesday and showers arrive. notice the clouds increasing there northwest winds at 10 to 15. on thursday morning clouds, late sunshine. a day time high temperature between 41 and 45 degrees if we are lucky. there are some indications that some of you may have a high temperature that is only in the 30s. but let's hope for maybe a moment or two of sun heating up the atmosphere a little bit. we will call for 42, 43 for most areas high temperature thursday. it will be a short cold snap. some improvement expected beyond that and we will talk about that later on in the forecast. >> thank you. and here is our trivia question for today. which baseball team features a race at every home game where four runners wearing costumes race toward the finish line? pittsburgh? minnesota?
12:38 pm
